TENANTS of five tower blocks that were dramatically evacuated last year following the Grenfell disaster say they are considering a “mass protest” at the Town Hall after another bombshell announcement about dangers on their estate. Camden Council this week sent letters out to residents in the 710 flats on the Chalcots estate saying 3,000 windows will need to be replaced because of safety fears.
THE Town Hall has been told that a £1.1million cheque set aside to do up Queen’s Crescent must be spent wisely. Camden won a bidding war with other local authorities to secure the money from the Greater London Authority. There is hope that the investment could breathe new life into one of the city’s oldest street markets. Labour regeneration chief Councillor Danny Beales said: “This could mean better streets, better areas for pedestrians, better seating, better lighting.
The Old White Bear before it closedTHIRSTY campaigners who fought to save a historic Hampstead pub are urging the building’s owners to set a date for its reopening. Regulars at the Old White Bear point out that it’s been 18 months since it was announced the bar would be brought back to life after years of worries that it would be turned into flats.
@nw5 I also know you can’t talk about such issues in a vacuum, so I understand your point (despite me not being up to speed about what a minor pressure group says). It’s why links between the Tories and Russian ‘businessmen’ worry me - they have huge, hidden effects on our city.
@nw5 Thanks - I’m afraid I’m fairly ignorant re what the STW stance is, or whether JC supports or condemns what they say re Syria, Crimea (more imp test of his views is surely what Lab policy is?). But as per original tweet, I’m interested in what he has said about this current issue.
<< all I’m hearing is anger about dumb Newsnight laziness, the usual mouths shouting ‘he’s a Commie’ (tho how that would make him pro-Putin is beyond me)... so, any links (such as Hansard, speeches, or official statements not newspaper comment pieces) gratefully received.
<< Jeremy Corbyn is being accused of being ‘pro-Russian.’ Either people are being grossly misled or I’ve missed it. Didnt he say a/ it’s despicable b/ we need a full enquiry into what happened and go through established international channels, and then take appropriate action? >>
I can never be bothered with discussing politics on Twitter. It’s so shouty and short, without any way to have a conversation, go off on interesting tangents and asides, and I lose patience tapping stuff out... but I’d be really grateful if anyone can send me links to why >>
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
